CAN THO (VNS)— Hundreds of young women living in the Mekong Delta participated in the selection round of the 2015 Miss Mekong Delta pageant in Can Tho City this week.
The contestants are mostly college and university students aged between 18 and 23, and need to fulfill certain physical criteria.
The organisers, Can Tho and advertising and trading company Sen Vang, said they had invited an expert jury to nominate 30 candidates for the semi final in mid-May.
The ladies will compete in traditional costumes, swimsuits, and evening wear and take part in a question-and-answer session.
There will also be two other events to highlight their talent and charity work.
Only five will go through to the final on June 27 in Can Tho, which will be broadcast live on HCM City Television and several provincial stations.
The winner will get a VND300 million (nearly US$15,000) prize and the runner-up will take home VND150 million ($7,500). — VNS
